Default Yet another "old revolver".

Couple days ago I picked up a post - war (WW 2) Colt Official Police. This one has a six inch barrel. Serial number gives it a DOB in 1947. For a few years after the war Colt put plastic grips on their handguns which they euphemistically called "Colt Wood". People hated them and threw them away by the ton. As a result they aren't very easy to find anymore. This one has them. I've taken them off because plastic gets brittle, but I am keeping them. So I now have three Official Police models and a pre-war Officer Model with 6" heavy barrel. I feel like I should be in a Bogart movie.

You know how there's cowboy action shooting? I've always wanted to do an "LA Confidential" shoot. You can only use weapons designed prior to say, 1950, and you'd have to do it in period dress, using only period shooting techniques.

That would be fun. Colt Official Police or a nice Smith & Wesson M&P and a Winchester Model 97 or Model 12 riot gun. Yes.

Check out Zoot Shooters, they kind of do that, but more geared towards Prohibition Era stuff

That's awesome that they do that for another period. Nothing against the Wild West era mind you, but still.

That said, cool beans on your latest acquisition, JC.
